The Scubapro Meridian is a new generation dive computer set to go on sale here in the Spring.

a useful all-rounder

Unlike some console-mount or gauge computers, the Meridian is styled like a wristwatch. But with a body and crown milled from 316-grade stainless steel, it should handle the knocks and bangs of a typical dive weekend.

The Meridian’s interface design enables switching between three modes: Scuba, Apnea (freedive) or Gauge.

In Scuba mode, the computer can handle two gas mixes of between 21% and 100% oxygen, with predictive decompression schedules calculated simultaneously between the two. There’s a comprehensive dive planner and an optional heart rate monitor, if such be your bag.

Switch it to Apnea, and accuracy is enhanced by a rapid sampling rate of 0.25 seconds. It has a host of audible warnings, can be adjusted for water density and has a freedive-specific logbook built-in.

Post-dive, data from the Meridian can be downloaded to your PC or Mac via Scubapro’s LogTrak software.

All in all, it looks like a useful all-rounder for the recreational dive crowd. The Scubapro Meridian dive computer will arrive in UK retailers in Spring 2012, costing around £400.
